In painting, what do you call the use of strong contrasts between light and dark?

Answer:

CHIAROSCURO

Chiaroscuro is the dramatic effect of contrasting areas of light and dark in an artwork, particularly paintings, to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures. It comes from the combination of the Italian words for "light" and "dark."
